Jets add offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum Jr., kicker Chandler Catanzaro

The big news, however, is the Jets signing Kelvin Beachum. Presumably he will replace Ryan Clady in the same spot with the Jets.

A former Pittsburgh Steeler and Jacksonville Jaguar, Beachum became a free agent when he was cut loose by the Jags several weeks ago after struggling mightily in his first season in sunny Florida.

The big question now for Beachum is, who will he be blocking for?

Beachum signed with the Jaguars before last season and started 15 games for them before they opted to pass on his option in favor of a trade for Branden Albert.

Beachum announced the signing on Twitter, and the Jets soon made it official.

Arizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro (7) is congratulated by his teammates after kicking a 44-yard field goal during the first half of an National Football League game against the St. Louis Rams on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014 in St. Louis.

Ijalana, who has played both left and right tackle, will likely compete with Brandon Shell on the right side of the Jets' offensive line. He was one and done with the Jaguars after a less than stellar season, but he had a quality career with the Steelers before that point. The 32-year-old has been the Jets' long snapper since 2010 and has played all seven of his National Football League seasons with the Jets. Cunningham has returned 95 kicks in four seasons with the Rams, where he also was a backup running back.
